Should they get rid of the 'Normal' type altogether?

All those pokemon that are solely Normal type could assimilate into other types, or even maybe have a few new types created.

Make it so there is no middle ground.
There is no 'Normal'.

So Chansey, Blissey, etc, are what type exactly?

I just think Normal shouldn't have any weaknesses and make a Light type that is weak to Dark only, while Dark is weak to Light.

Yeah, make Normal have no weaknesses, just like it doesn't hit anything for 2x.

Though Blissey would be uber material if this happened.

That's what I think, because it doesn't make sense that Normal is weak to Fighting. If there is a meaning behind this, then please explain. If a hero (Fighting) takes on evil (Dark), that makes sense. But hero attacks Normal/civilian, then that's evil as well.

I'd say that it's the difference between a normal, every day person against a trained martial artist. If you got into a fight with a black belt, chances are that you would get your arse kicked and get it kicked quickly.

From a design perspective it's because a pokemon with no weaknesses is much more game breaking than a type no one is weak to.
